Second Life

Once uopon a time there was Second Life…

Design AtmoSphere, the virtual museum about Turin’s young designers

For my final thesis at the Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design, toghether with Lorena Federica Boetto, we designed this virtual museum on Second Life, containing ten design projects created by some young Turin’s designers.

The spaces made are ten sealed domes joined in pairs and suspended in mid-air. Every object is exposed in his own context of use. Visitors can properly get into the contexts and interact with the objects.

In this exhibit visitors wont find objects under a glass teche, but they are setted in their contexts of use, thus giving a chance to show the maximum of their characteristics and properties.

The objects exposed in the museum are not works of art, but industrial design projects, then inseparables because of this from their own enviroment of use.

Just some articles about our virtual museum:
